About Yuliia Ustymenko

"Painting is an opportunity to tell a lot without saying a word".

I’m an artist, specializing in oil paintings. In addition, I love using gold leaf, structural paste and pigments for the richness and luminosity that these materials brings to a painting.

The core of my work are portraits and abstractions. Sometimes I put philosophical content in them, and sometimes it is humor. I suppose that my goal as an artist is not only to realize personal creative ideas, but also to elicit emotion the audience. When my paintings to elicit an emotional response, I understand that I successfully fulfilled the set objectives.

I always use highly pigmented paints to ensure that the artworks will be a good long-term investment for people.

I hope you can see something in my art that can attract and inspire you as it does to me.

My work is currently held in private collections across the globe.
